The story of St. Jude begins with Danny Thomas: a man who, during a tough time in his life, prayed to the patron saint of lost causes for a sign to point him in the right direction. He promised that in exchange, he would someday build a shrine to St. Jude. After some time and much success in his own life, he decided the best way to thank the saint of the hopeless was to build a hospital to care for the most helpless of all: children with hopeless diseases.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was opened in 1962 based on the dream that “no child should die in the dawn of life” and that no child should be turned away because of their family’s inability to pay. No matter how poor the child’s family, their religion, or their race, the doors to St. Jude are always open. Since 1962, they’ve helped improve the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80%! St. Jude is leading the way that the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
In addition to the world class research conducted at St. Jude, all donations make it possible for no family to ever receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, but many of their patients live right here in Nashville. Attend an event in Nashville, volunteer locally, or make a donation here!
